The Prelude


Birthdays and Announcement

*Call to Worship:
Leader: When we consider God’s laws; they seem like a heavy yoke with
which we are burdened.
People: We are reminded that Jesus invited us to take his yoke, which is light
and easy to bear.
Leader: Jesus comes in fulfillment of the law, giving us grace when the law would
condemn us.
People: We are burdened with sin, and come to Christ, that he may lead us
into the joy of salvation.

*Opening Hymn “God Hath Spoken by the Prophets” UMH # 108

Opening Prayer
You know our frustration, Father: We want to be righteous, but we are possessed by sin. Forgive us when our human nature makes it so difficult for us to express the righteousness we desire. Help us to depend more on Christ to enable us to live the life of the Spirit, so that we may not continue with our minds controlled by our human nature. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
